what must be subtracted from 5 1/6 to get 2 11/18

from Hadiya wani

*x*.

So we have;

$5\frac{1}{6}-x=2\frac{11}{18}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{31}{6}-x=\frac{47}{18}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=\frac{31}{6}-\frac{47}{18}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=\frac{93-47}{18}=\frac{46}{18}=\frac{23}{9}=2\frac{5}{9}$

Therefore the number to be subtracted is $2\frac{5}{9}$
